I finally went out and bought the i860. I was a little unsure about the photo quality, until I got it home. I printed a few pictures on the 4X6 Photo Pro paper that came with the printer and they came out great. I even threw in some Espon 4X6 glossy photo paper and even they came out acceptable. I only ran into one problem and that was when I tried to print out a wallet sized print on to the 4X6 paper. The colors were very muddy, especially the greens. I printed this on the Epson paper so I figure that may have something to do with it.

What paper is everyone else using out there? I see that the Canon Photo Pro is pretty steep on price, and I've heard good things about Red River.

Thanks for all the help choosing this printer.

Dave

I've used Red River and it works fine. They have a sampler pack thats pretty cheap.

I'm hooked on Kodak Ultima it goes on sale frequently and the thickness is really photo like. I use the Satin finish mostly the glossy is not as glossy as others. Unfortunately the 4x6 Kodak is actually4x6.5 so it does not really work with the Canon.

I've also used some cheap IBM paper and it works OK. http://shop4.outpost.com/product/3630775

As with all printers Canon has now improved the i860, they changed the case and it now prints faster and does two sided prints (ip4000).

I'm gonna order some Cannon paper from these guys tommorow. At their prices I can get what I need for almost half off of what I pay locally

Buy.com also has pretty good prices on the Canon Paper. They have a 10pk of the 20 sheet 4 X 6 Borderless Photo Paper Pro packages (total 200 sheets)for $55 - $60 with free shipping. IIRC the single 20 sheet packs area a little over $6.
